I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend, and I just want to say again how much I truly appreciate the lovely emails and comments dear friends:-).
We did end up going to our beach place for the weekend and the girly girls met up with us for some much needed R & R.
This is what's happening around the ol' Fufu place today, as it's Hurricane Season and time to get the hundreds of coconuts trimmed so that they don't become fly missles in the event of a storm. The trees have become so tall that the only way to trim them is with a Polecat, and since we don't have one handy we have to hire out. One of the costs of living in paradise I guess....but as long as no monumental storms come our way this year I won't complain......too much.
Our oldest did move out and already I am thinkin' of what I will do with her room! I don't think that she wants her furniture, so will have to see if we know anyone who is in need....if not it will be donated to a local shelter's shop. Mr. Fufu and I have been sharing a home office for a long time now, and my studio is way too cramped and used for lots of other things......soooo, I believe that I will be moving both operations into that room. My own room...yay! Mr. Fufu will then be happy to use our joint office as his Man Cave.....a place for his flat screen, perhaps a recliner (not too yucky though!) and his weights and exercise equip. My studio/office?? Not sure how I will go and will think, think for a bit. I have lots of pieces that I may use....I want to mix in the vintage with maybe some new. I love the collections at Pottery Barn Teen.......so may do some shopping here. Do any of you have pieces from their collections? I wonder how comfy the chairs are?
Here is some of what I am inspired by.....lots of white, aqua, vintage containers and glass with touches of pink (of course:-).
I am taking my inspiration starting point from these! I have been hanging onto this pair of very old cabinet doors in this unbelievable chippy old aqua for a couple of years now waiting to find the perfect use. What do you think of a long table for against a wall by adding some legs? Any other suggestions?
I love this old glass door cabinet and it's a HUGE one! I bought it some years back at an estate sale in an old wood cottage in beautiful Coconut Grove, Fl. This will most certainly go in for storage, probably of my old textile collection.
I have at least 10 of the vintage wallpaper hat boxes and keep all sorts of stuff in them. Will definitely be lining this up on some shelf.
Someplace has to be found for this old beach cottage shelf with the hooks that will come in handy for vintage ribbons.
Other assorted container storage must haves....old wicker purses and breadboxes.
Apothecary Jars and cloches....I enjoy seeing what I have to work with by using them for storage and display.
This one isn't old, it's been hanging on the patio for a couple of years and is a Tracy Porter chandelier. We just found a retro 50's grape chandelier that we replaced it with outside. I am sure I can Fufu this up somehow!
I need a few more of these.
Let me know if you have any ideas.....I would love to see of of your home office or studio shots on your blogs!
